Well, last week was rough. And I’m not just saying that because my Cup pick finished dead last. Remember the car trouble I was telling you about? Well, just my luck that i finally got the money together, got everything taken care of—and I get a flat tire. So there I was, on my way home from work, stranded on the side of the road. Thankfully I had roadside assistance, but there’s nothing quite like trying to make awkward conversation with a guy you just met at 11:30pm. Besides that there’s a big shakeup happening with management at work, so I’ve been working plenty late to try and impress the visitors from regional headquarters. Here’s hoping I have better news for you with next week’s picks—and some more wins to my name!
Xfinity Series Fitzgerald 300 (1 win)—Brandon Jones—JGR sweeps the top three spots with no help from the Cup brigade.
Cup Series Food City 500—MYSTERY PICKER (2 wins) PICKS Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Favorite: Kyle Busch—oh, so the Mystery Picker’s getting a little cocky, eh? Next Favorite: Kyle Larson—Chevy gets back on track at a non-aero track. Dark Horse: William Byron—upset of the season (so far).
